They melt really fast. I keep them in the freezer and use a paper towel to eat them,other wise it melts in my hand.

They melt very rapidly at room temperature. I freeze them in their cupcake liners for about 20 min, then pop them out and store in a plastic container that I keep in the fridge. They don't stick together. I tried keeping them in the freezer, but my teeth are very sensitive...frozen ones were just too cold.

I LOVE Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream Concentrate... My poor piggy bank... Not so much so...

During Tropical Traditions last sale (this past weekend), I bought 11lbs of shredded coconut for $34.95 with free shipping. Add a few cups into my food processor and less than 10 minutes later I have coconut cream concentrate/coconut butter/coconut manna... Piggy bank is much happier

Also picked up 78oz jars of Nutiva Coconut Oil at Costco for $21.99 each so the piggy is very happy... As am I

i made the best fat bombs out of cream and butter. tastes like caramel.

use butter and cream 1:1

heat the butter slowly till it boils and turns golden brown. then add cream and sweetener of choice to taste. return to boil, stirring constantly, until it becomes thick and sticky. remove from heat and stir for a bit while it cools some...it may separate but keep stirring. pour into a lined pan and chill till hardened. cut into desired pieces.

got this recipe for a blog called the ketocook.

YUM Fat Bombs!

Love the ideas of:
- cocoa and cayenne (no nut butter, just CO)
- lemon with cream cheese recipe mid-thread

I did it today, fourthing the recipe to limit myself. I regretted it when it was all gone. I used the proportions from the first post, plus a bit of almond butter. I used SF Vanilla DaVinci syrup! Awesome!!! This will become repertoire.

The first time I made these using the original recipe (didn't have the chocolate), I forgot the sweetener -- Oops! They were still good though. It was kinda like an unsweet peanut butter cup if that makes sense; they had the peanut butter taste but the not a sweet taste.

Tonight I made them based on the original recipe but adjusted slightly:
4 T coconut oil
4 T natural PB (crunchy)
1.5 oz cream cheese
3 packets Splenda
Pinch/dash of salt, vanilla, & cinnamon to taste
I did them bark-style tonight instead of a cupcake pan/liners. They're not oily at all--maybe the cream cheese in place of the butter made them less oily?

Now I just have to keep them hidden from my kids! They tried the last batch and didn't like them since they weren't sweet so maybe they won't be interested in this batch.

I enjoy reading everyone's options and look forward to trying more!

I checked the keto cook blog and I could only find one or two recipes...am I looking at the wrong blog?

Are these numbers for the batch or for 1?

From what I understand, it's the whole batch as written by Widget on another fat bomb thread back in September. I definitely can not eat all of that, no way. When I made them I put them in a silicone heart mold and I believe it made around 8 (1 T. each). I could only eat 2 at a time as they're Very rich. I usually just pop one in my mouth and let it melt. They're VERY good!

Deb34, if you google Keto Cook blog, the first one that comes up will be the blog with all the recipes. I have gotten several ideas from them.

4 TB CO
4 TB Natural PB
1 TB Salted Butter
1 TB Splenda
Plus, I took one piece of SF chocolate and crumbled it up in the mixture after I had nuked the CO and PB and Butter and stirred in the other ingredients.

I thought it would taste yucky, but it is sooooo good. This stuff has to be addictive. Will have to make sure I don't make too much at one time, because I could definitely overdo it with this.

I actually made mine more like coconut bark, because I haven't had a chance to get silicone molds yet.
These are SOOO good! I am glad I made them before I clicked send on my Netrition order, because I ordered LOTS more CO than I originally planned on!

I only made 1/2 batch the first time (wasn't sure if I would like them), made two more 1/2 batches after that to experiment.

So far my favorite is like the above, except I used 1/2 peanut butter & 1/2 almond butter & added 1 heaping teaspoon of cocoa powder, 1 TBLS of DaVinci Vanilla syrup (SF of course), a few drops of EZ sweet and 1/4 tsp of vanilla. I am sure I saw a variation like that in this thread or another thread like this one.

I love these, not only do they taste wonderful but also because I struggle to keep from losing weight (I low carb to minimize insulin usage) and these are going help so much.

This is amazing. I misread and didn't let the butter brown before adding the cream, so I used toasted marshmallow davinci for my sweetener. Oh. My. Goodness. I love the flavor so much! I'm doing a fat fast right now and this is going to be perfect.

I was just going to ask this, I have fresh ground almond butter I'm going to make this this weekend for my terrible sweets craving

I think mine turned out aweful. I think I may have needed to add the cream before the sweetener cause it started to boil and then there were like pieces of sweetener throughout. I may have browned the butter too much too. I guess it's a trial and error thing. I used Stevia too and thought maybe I should have used a different sweetener. I will try again. I underestimated how looooong I would be stirring too haha.

Made this a couple of hours ago, poured it into two bowls and froze it. Next time I'll have silicone cupcake containers, and that'll definitely help. It was good, although I think I bought the wrong kind of peanut butter - realised that it has zero calories and zero fat, so I don't think it ever saw peanuts. Will make the next batch without it. But this is definitely a keeper, it'll fill me up wonderfully when I'm going to gym from work, without having a proper lunch.

THIS THREAD, where have you been all my life???

I just ate natural peanut butter (trader joes has a cheap one with no added sugar! Tastes pretty much like Jiffy if you stir and refrigerate!) CO, and truvia with a dash of vanilla. AWESOME. I can't wait to try the rest of these.

So lemony and yummy.

Lemon Fat Bomb

1 ounce cream cheese, room temp.
2 Tablespoons butter, room temp.
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 Tablespoon sour cream
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon lemon extract
sweetener to taste

Stir together the cream cheese and butter. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until smooth. Refrigerate until it stiffens up. If you are the impatient type, freeze for 20 minutes before eating.

Fat = 63.13 g
Protein = 2.84 g
Total Carbs = 1.58 g
Oh My!! Just made these and they are awesome. I did add lemon zest since I was using a fresh lemon.
